Heart Home New Designer – Home Slice Design
Home Slice Design is on a mission to celebrate the everyday, the over-look and the unsung heroes of Britain, it is the creative partnership of illustrator Steph Parr, and product designer Ellie Gregory, who create homewares to uplift and amuse.
With a shared love for greasy spoons, nostalgic memories and forgotten champions of the British pantry; their designs have bags of personality, balancing craftsmanship, illustration and their unique humour. Based in East London, everything Home Slice create is made and produced in the UK by small independent manufactures if not by themselves.
“We have a special sense of humour(!), a comforting humour that draws from references we’ve all grown up with or see everyday, but don’t necessarily pay attention to. We like to think that, in our own small way, we’re championing the unsung domestic heroes of Britain and creating homewares that inspire nostalgia and optimism and the occasional smirk.” Ellie Gregory, Home Slice Design.
Their talent has won them exclusive commissions from the South Bank Centre and recognition and praise from The Times, Living Ect and The Observer.
Home Slice Design will be introducing a new selection of Glassware in Spring 2014, working with UK factories in Stoke on Trent to create a brand new range inspired by G&T’s in the pub, dusty decanters and ‘Nana’s Finest’.
Home Slice Design will be exhibiting on the Heart Home stand at Home London from 12 – 14 January. Earls Court 2, London.
Heart Home magazine will be on stand M46.
Also in association with Pressloft UK.
